There isn’t one. Once the platelets have been affected by Plavix, the anti clotting abilty of those platelets is permanently altered. However, new platelets are replaced every 7-10 days, so generally, clotting returns in about 5 days. It is important NEVER to stop taking Plavix suddenly. The dose should be gradually discontinued under a physician’s supervision.
